“I’ll love you when I’m breathing”

by kaylarae

Genre: Pop

Listen to song Lyrics

My heart beats only for you, dear.
No other man can draw me near. It's so magical. If I have you, I have it all.
Your sharpie lyrics on my arms, your silly ways, your instant charm.
I fall every day. Catch me on the way.
And when I land, I'll fall again.
Chorus: I'll love you in the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening, once we greet the moon, when I wake up, when I fall asleep each night. I'll love you when I'm dressed up, or in my PJ's, when I'm breathing, this is not a phase, when the sun's up- I'll love you a little more. I'll love you when I'm breathing
-
My heart beats only for you, love. Your love alone, is just enough. I fall every day, catch me on the way. Your crazy laugh, your gentle smile- makes me forget this pain a while. I fall every day, catch me on the way.
And when I land, I'll fall again.
Chorus x2

Shine Bright

by evanstandish

Genre: Pop

Listen to song Lyrics

I am always out there searching for you
It's like trying to find the sun at night
I wanna feel your warm arms around me
I just need you to show me your light

I wonder what your voice will sound like
As it gently whispers in my ear
I see your outline standing in the doorway
But your face is never quite clear
.
If wanting something so much, could make it come true
Then you'd be right here and I'd be with you
No matter how near or far, you are away
I will find you and bring you home to stay
.
Time goes by so slow as I wander
Through crowded streets where all looks the same
My heart will never ever find freedom
Until I know your name

So shine bright tonight
Shine with all your might
Show me a sign
So my true love I'll find

If wanting something so much, could make it come true
Then you'd be right here and I'd be with you
No matter how near or far, you are away
I will find you and bring you home to stay

I will find you and bring you home to stay

Alice in Wonderland

Genre: Jazz

Listen to song Lyrics

If I coul pass the time and spaces
I'd imagine things that make no sence
But in my dreams they could be real
I could imagine trails that lead me to the sky
And all the stars are blinding
'Cause they're not so far, not so far
The grass would grow so green and tall
The moon and sun would have no doubt
If its rainy day or darkest night
They'd shine to bring the magic joyfull light

If you meet my funny charming cat
Please don't afraid, he's strange but not so bad
He's my old friend, my old friend
Would you like to have a cup of tea
And celebrate a birthday or maybe
To talk with flowers sing with flowers
The grass would grow so green and tall
The moon and sun would have no doubt
If its rainy day or darkest night
They'd shine to bring the magic joyful light
We could play some croquet with the queen
And find the rabbit runnin' around the filds all day long
And if you don't want to lose your head
You'd better paint the roses red
Not to make the queen upset
So welcome to my wonderland
There's nothing that can make you sad
If you can dream the same like me
Than come with me to wonderland...

Stand Tall

Listen to song Lyrics

Stand Tall
By Mark Morgan © 2017

When I was just a small boy, my father came to me.
He said Son there’ll come a time, when you will have to be
Strong to the core, and unable to fall.
He told me that from now on I must, always stand tall

Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will never fall
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will have it all
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will become
A Man that can, stand alone,
And hold the world up, all alone.

Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will never fall
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will have it all
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will become
The man that you want to be,
A man that is always free,
The man that I call son,
The man I will always love.

Stand Tall, Stand Tall, Now I am Standing Tall.
So Stand Tall, Stand Tall, ’cause I know I’m not the only one.
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and together we will never run;
Together we can face the world.
Together we can save the world.

Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and together we can’t fall.
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and we will have it all
Stand Tall, Stand Tall; we are Standing Tall for us all

Heartache

by amandamtaylormusic

Genre: Pop

Listen to song Lyrics

You led me on
to let me fall
Now it's like you don't even
care at all
I'm back to where I started
Back to being broken hearted
Late night thinking has me all over the place

Maybe I got attached too easily
Maybe I should just let you go
Maybe I am over thinking
Maybe I shouldn't let it show

It's time for me to move on now
Not show any signs of heartbreak
All's you did was give me  heartache
I can't let you win this time
And let you control my mind
When all's you did was give me
Heartache

I guess this was my fault
for thinking that you were the one
Making myself believe that
you wanted it as bad

Maybe I got attached too easily
Maybe I should just let you go
maybe I am over thinking
maybe I shouldn't let it show

It's time for me to move on now
Not show any signs of heartbreak
All's you did was give me  heartache
I can't let you win this time
And let you control my mind
When all's you did was give me
Heartache

Maybe I got attached too easily
Maybe I should just let you go
maybe I am over thinking
maybe I shouldn't let it show

It's time for me to move on now
Not show any signs of heartbreak
All's you did was give me  heartache
I can't let you win this time
And let you control my mind
When all's you did was give me
Heartache

I just stood listening

by sowmeey

Genre: Classical

Listen to song Lyrics

I heard a feathered ecstatic chirp,
A whir of bees in the vicinity.
I heard the holy temple gongs,
Drumbeats echoing all around.

As I stood listening
As I stood listening.
All I felt was paradise,
And I felt like a cantatrice.

But then I opened my eyes...

The chirp hushed when the blade fell,
Bees in retreat, their ancestry gone.
The grieving songs synched with tolling bells...
Rage despise hatred abomination..

As i stood listening
As i stood listening
All I felt was scorching coal
And I felt my entombed soul.

I wonder...
I wonder if anyone is listening
I wonder about the rustling of the leaves veiled by the honking of the cars.
The sparkle of the moon behind the smoke from below.
I wonder about the giggle from the baby and the scream next door.
The blooming flower cut snap snap snap.

As is stood listening,
Listening..
I wondered if the music died
Or if chords had just changed!

Carried Away

by guruguru

Genre: Pop

Listen to song Lyrics

Carried Away

Waiting,
Waiting for nothing at all, still I know
That a day will come
When no chord I strum,
When my song ceases to flow.
I am,
I am no longer the one to be heard,
But to leave like that
Would be to neglect
That I've done something absurd...

I'm carried away,
Whereby, whereto - does it matter?
I've no wish to look behind,
All I had to find
Is a wind to ride.
I'm carried away,
I just feel it is fate that I'll get to.
I'm now almost feather-light as I'm flying
While carried away.

Slow down,
Hold on and lighten your heart, let it sing.
In a moment's time
You will hear the chime,
Off you start once it begins.
Over,
Over the deserted hills, silent plains...
Wind is rather strong,
And it won't be long
Till you feel rather the same.

We're carried away,
Whereby, whereto - doesn't matter.
There's no need to look behind,
All we had to find
Is a wind to ride.
We're carried away,
Don't you feel it is fate that we'll get to?
I'm now almost feather-light as we're flying
While carried away.

No idea why are we up
In the air -
Why should I care?
If our fall will be that abrupt,
We will never wake,
Our spirit being at stake!
Why recall; the fall but for now.

We're carried away,
Whereby, whereto - doesn't matter.
There's no way we'll look behind,
All we had to find
Is a wind to ride.
We're carried away,
Don't you know it is fate that we'll get to?
I'm now almost feather-light as we're flying
While carried away.
I'm now only feather-light as we're flying
While carried away.

Moral of the Story

by mjt

Genre: Pop

Listen to song Lyrics

Verse 1
my hopes were up high, and then they stooped low
my mind was focused, and then I was confused.
You told me you cared, but tell me the truth, who are you?

Chorus 1
you threw me out
you didn't care
nothing but selfishness
I'm just another name
marked off your list

Verse 2
You threw me off guard, and threw me off my feet, one thing I know is that you made a mistake
You told me you cared, but tell me the truth, who are you?

Bridge
so the moral of the story
is that you can't trust everyone
Cause most of them will take off and run

VERSE 1:
Every day i look around and all i seem to see,
is broken hearts and broken trust and pain all around me,
I look up to the sky and try to make pictures out the clouds,
Then I see your face It all just turns around

I'd do anything just to spend one more day with you,
I want you here I want you back,
But no i guess it don't mean anything to you,
cause you are everything,
everything to me

Missing you more,
Than anything in the world,
But baby you can save me from the life i'm living,
I see your face when i look up,
It all just turns around

I'd do anything just to spend one more day with you,
I want you here I want you back,
But no i guess it don't mean anything to you,
cause you are everything,
everything to me

BRIDGE:
I'm just standing around,
seeing your face,
everywhere i go,
is just a silhouette of you,
Standing around,
seeing your face,
Everywhere i go is just a silhouette of you

CHORUS:
I'd do anything just to spend one more day with you,
I want you here I want you back,
But no i guess it don't mean anything to you,
cause you are everything,
everything to me,
I'd do anything just to spend one more day with you,
I want you here I want you back,
But no i guess it don't mean anything to you,
cause you are everything,
everything to me

Listen to song Lyrics

here i sit,by myself and think
i strap my shoes upon my feet
try to take my flame from me, you never will
you doubt me still and you always will
im marchin like a soldier
through anything
you might slow me down
but you wont stop me
im marchin like a soldier
faithfully
you might slow me down
but you wont stop me
all the nights and the fights and the lies
and the tears you cried and the reasons why
all the nights with my head up in my hands
losin my mind
every word every scream every bruise
everytime youve tried to deny
where you been, where you goin
im tired of never knowin
and im tired of all your lies
im marchin like a soldier
through anything
you might slow me down
but you wont stop me
im marchin like a soldier
faithfully
you might slow me down
but you wont stop me
you can rip the heart from my chest
i dont need it anyway
when im alone, when im alone
im at my best
ive been bruised ive been broken
and i went unspoken
and i fell down to crawl
but i stood back up
and im still standin tall
im marchin like a soldier
through anything
you might slow me down
but you wont stop me

Damn the Royalty
Copyright (C) 1998 by
Kerry B. Rogers

It's a new day
I must find a job
What is the use?
When times get rough
They'll just let me go.

I pace the dock of life
Looking for sails
But, the water's too shallow
For my ship to come in.

Damn the royalty
Their heads turn from my strife
In their outstretched hand
A pink slip - might as well be a knife
Where's the loyalty?
Don't tell me that's just life
I'm on the outside lookin' in.

Standing in line
Waiting my turn
Get to the booth
Look through the bars of life

Grumpy old bitch
Serving this mob
I'm on the outside
Lookin' in for a job.

Damn the royalty
Their heads turn from my strife
In their outstretched hand
A pink slip - might as well be a knife
Where's the loyalty
Don't tell me that's just life
I'm on the outside lookin' in.

A decade has passed
I own a store
Keeping my business
Is so hard anymore

Who will it be?
Who gets the axe?
Constantly fending off the bills
And the tax

Now I'm royalty
My head turns from their strife
In my outstretched hand
A pink slip - might as well be a knife
Where's my loyalty?
I guess that's just life
I'm on the inside lookin' out.

The Kitchen Party

by cjbonnell

Genre: Folk

Listen to song Lyrics

There was a kitchen party every Saturday night
You could hear the fiddles til the morning light
Dogs all asleep on the mat at the back porch door
Danny would start with an old folk song then all guitars would play along
No one knew the song name that’s for sure

Julie and me would drive quite far to hear the boys all play guitar
Kids would dance in the middle of the kitchen floor
Scott would pick out a banjo tune, Linda kept beat with her wooden spoons
Dogs kept sleeping on the mat at the back porch door

There was a kitchen party every Saturday night
You could hear the fiddles til the morning light
Dogs all asleep on the mat at the back porch door
Danny would start with an old folk song then all guitars would play along
No one knew the song name that’s for sure

Apology

by koolc92

Genre: Pop

Listen to song Lyrics

verse 1:
Tomorrow is another day
a chance for the pain to go away
I know it's hard for you to stay
today oh today
sometimes things get hard
people get sad
sometimes things get tough
and we get mad
we say things we never meant
escalate beyond the bad

Chorus:
but there's gonna be another day anyway
for us to play at the game we made
love may seem all but lost
but forever has a cost
however long it may take
the lonely nights
you are worth the fight

verse 2:
the day may stick in your mind
like an arrow it hurts this time
I know we did things that went too far
yesterday yesterday
times got tough
but time heals all wounds
the words we said never again

Chorus:
but there's gonna be another day anyway
for us to play at the game we made
love may seem all but lost
but forever has a cost
however long it may take
the lonely nights
you are worth the fight

Bridge:
we've become lost
within ourselves
more anger
than we ever should have held
this apology may be too late
but if you want it it's yours to take

Chorus:
but there's gonna be another day anyway
for us to play at the game we made
love may seem all but lost
but forever has a cost
however long it may take
the lonely nights
you are worth the fight

Listen to song Lyrics

Intro : The sorrow day is when you go far away
Waited so long but there was no one came
Why u didn't say you dont want to see me

The rain has coming on the way back home
The darkness falling and i'm still all alone
How to heal my heart
I'm trying so hard

Hook 1 :

Because I'm too lonely lonely, girl
I have to hide my tears deep down inside the smile
How many thoughts that i keep in my mind
Just only me
So sometimes i want to find somebody
The one who don't know anythings about us
Don't tell me that i was silly when i'm still love you
Don't tell me anything that i can do
to forget you
I need someone who can listen
When i say

The sorrow day is when you go far away
Waited so long but there was no one came
Why u didn't say you dont want to see me

The rain has coming on the way back home
The darkness falling and i'm still all alone
How to heal my heart
I'm trying so hard

Hook 2 :

Because I'm too lonely lonely, girl
I have to hide my tears deep down inside the smile
How many thoughts that i keep in my mind
Just only me
So sometimes i want to find somebody
To tell the love memories about us
The first date we have met
All the stories we've got
I love you more and more than can be
And i just need
I need someone who by my side
When i say....

Hook 3:

Because I'm too lonely lonely, girl.

You’re my temptation
Loving elation
Peppermint taste in my mind
Mystical nightfall
Whispering love call
Baby you’re really my kind

Loving emotions
I got the notion
Memories happening here
And in this knowing
That love is growing
Heartbreak is nothing to fear

Only in you
No is not known
Only in you
That love is known
And I’m into you

So easy dreaming
Knowing believing
Our love is set in stone
From here to never
On to forever
Together never alone

Feelings of my heart
Belong to your heart
Love is the opening key
Shadowing my heart
Listen to your heart
Musical love harmony

Only in you
No is not known
Only in you
That love is known
And I’m into you

Love is the opening key
Shadowing my heart
Listen to your heart

FEEL THE LOVE (Red Yyii Guy)

Their eyes are red with greed ... and this refers to anyone living this "mine/must have" mentality...from your neighbour to your government, to their financial institutions, etc etc ...)

We know for a fact: Greed Makes All Children Bleed. So why do we (allow to) continue?

Verse

Red Yyii, Guy ... Red Yyii, Guy …. Tell me why …

There’s more on the table – than you can eat with our eyes.

Still, children a go hungry…. While, you belly full with pride

Red Yyii, Guy ... Red Yyii, Guy …. Tell me why …

Chorus

I Feel The Love, U Feel The Love – Inside

Red Yii, Guy… tell me why children have to die....

Tell me why... woman a cry…

I Feel The Love, U Feel Love – Inside

Who are we? We come from Most High

I Feel The Love, U Feel Love – Inside

Verse

First time I tell you, next time I show you --- It’s no lie…

Felicity in Life and Love is ours - before we die.

War won’t kill you! … War won’t kill you, like pride.

Red Yyii, Guy ... Red Yyii, Guy …. I tell you why …

Chorus

I Feel The Love, U Feel The Love – Inside

Red Yii, Guy… tell me why children have to die....

I Feel The Love, U Feel The Love – Inside

Tell me why... woman a cry…

I Feel The Love, U Feel Love – Inside

Who are we? We come from Most High

I Feel The Love, U Feel Love – Inside

Verse

Still, children a go hungry…. While, you belly full with pride

Free yourself from any slavery – at any price …

Listen to song Lyrics

Not Just Another Breakup Song
To me you're not just
another breakup song,
you're my best friend,
with you is where I belong.
You told me you loved me,
I said I loved you too
But I was dying inside
Not wanting to hurt you

I can't live
with or without you,
and I am torn
to do what I have to.
I wouldn’t change a thing
cuz baby when I see you smile
I can face the world
Just stay with me a while
you're all that I want
I don't wanna miss a thing
I’ll be forever yours
ohhh faithfully
I even love the sound
of silence with you.
but I’ll let you go
because I love you.
I can't live
with or without you,
and I am torn
to do what I have to.

Now I lay down at night
All alone in my bed
feeling the cold tears
run down my skin
knowing how you’ll
be feeling even worse
when I tell you this
I don’t wanna see you hurt!

I would prefer
to spend forever with you
under the cool night sky
like we used to do,
talking and laughing
as though time had stopped.
Singing and reminiscing
Under the stars

Would I go back and trade
those moments though?
Never, because you’ve truly
Touched my soul
But I’m going crazy
cuz the person you said
you live forIs the one
breaking your heart instead

How the sky is white
And how the wind is cool
papers are flying every where
and frozen tear laying on my face
It's about how the weather changes
and everything I own
is a memory about a dream
so keep fighting in the storm
facing the sand by your eyes
never give up
never look back
teach the storm what the man is you
what ever was your enemy fight
till you overcome and have the fun fight
the world is weak when you believe you can fight
you are man
you are a power
you can do the possible
so, trust your self and keep moving on
show the people how far you can stand
and fight, fight and fight
how the ground is golden
and how the weather is warm
it's all about great victory

Burning Trees

Listen to song Lyrics

This is the beginning of me letting go, letting go,
you dont really love me, you dont even me, you dont even really know,
this is the beginning of me burning slow,
like forest fire the trees are flaming on the patio,

everybody lies, everybody cries,
this is not what I had hoped to be,
the ship sails and my heart wails,
in the middle of a dead sea,

everybody rise, look at my disguise,
this is not what im supposed to be,
with arms out let the rain fall down
on the heart on a burning tree,

everybody tries look in my eyes,
this is not what I had hoped to be,
we plant a seed let the roots grow deep,
set flames for a burning tree,

this is the beginning of me letting go, letting go
this is the beginning of me burning slow,
your poured gasoline on top of my head down to my toes,

I HEAR YOU’RE EXPECTING A LITTLE BUNDLE OF JOY
YOU’RE NOT SURE YET WHETHER IT’S A GIRL OR A BOY
I HEAR THAT SUDDENLY HE’S NOWHERE TO BE FOUND
BUT IF YOU NEED SOMEONE I’LL BE AROUND

YOUR BABY NEEDS A DADDY I’LL BE THERE FOR YOU
YOUR BABY NEEDS A DADDY I DO BELIEVE IT’S TRUE
I’LL SING TO HIM A LULLABY EVERY SINGLE NIGHT
I’LL TELL HER DADDY LOVES HER BEFORE I TURN OUT THE LIGHT
YOUR BABY NEEDS A DADDY

ANY LOVING HE CAN DO I CAN DO ALL THAT AND MORE
BUT WHEN THE GOING GETS SO TOUGH I WON’T BE RUNNING OUT THE DOOR
A FULL GROWN BOY CAN MAKE A BABY YOU KNOW THAT IT’S TRUE
BUT IT ALWAYS TAKES A REAL MAN TO SEE THINGS THROUGH
YOUR BABY NEEDS A DADDY

I KNOW YOUR HEART IS BROKEN YOU THOUGHT HE WAS THE ONE
BUT ALL HE DID WAS TELL YOU LIES SO THAT HE COULD HAVE HIS FUN
I SAID I’LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE
SO COME BACK TO ME MY LOVE TO WHAT GOD DID PRE ARRANGE

YOUR BABY NEEDS A DADDY I’LL BE THERE FOR YOU
YOUR BABY NEEDS A DADDY I DO BELIEVE IT’S TRUE
I’LL SING TO HIM A LULLABY EVERY SINGLE NIGHT
I’LL TELL HER DADDY LOVES HER BEFORE I TURN OUT THE LIGHT

Innocent Lies

Listen to song Lyrics

Innocent Lies
Bruno Bessa

Once I met a silly boy
Ordinary as could be
But not so ordinary
If you looked more carefully

The kid was smarter than the others
It was not hard to get it
But he's never been his mother's dream
He was too shy to admit it

He never had too many friends
He didn't handle it so well
It was not cool, the kids from school
Just made his life a hell

He felt so different when he was
In his own world of his room
Where he could shine, sing lullabies
Or just fly to the moon

So wrong, he suffered alone
No one could see behind his smiling face
Stuck on this circle of innocent lies
That's where he could hide

He had to hold on
Insisting on his own denials
So he could feel human
He had to move on
Resisting a gazillion miles
So he could be like the others

The boy has grown and he has thrown
His past down the drain
But sometimes he still sheds a tear
When he recalls the pain

But he's not weak, not such a freak
His feet are on the ground
Although he feels his future is lost
Somewhere to be found

So wrong, he bears it alone
Different problems, or maybe just the same
Stuck on his circle of innocent lies
Just trying to hide

He has to hold on
Insisting on his own denials
So he can feel human
He has to move on
Resisting a gazillion miles
So he can be like the others

But he can't fool himself by saying it's Ok
Deep inside he knows he's still afraid
Will anyone hear when he cries for help?
Or will he be forgotten like an old book on the shelf?

Once I met a silly boy
Ordinary as could be
But not so ordinary
If you looked more carefully

Past Tense

Genre: Indie

Listen to song Lyrics

Back and forth in my mind,
just as fast as I can pace.
I try to make more sense of it
when I see your eyebrows raise.
But let's wait to critique
until the final taste.
You still wanted your room,
so I sent you out to space.

I can't wait until the elements
knock some sense in you.
You'll regret buying that new car
'cause you needed a new roof.
You thought you loved me,
but you only loved the chase.
And I thought I loved you too,
but I only liked your face.

Ooh, you're love is traced
Ooh, and mines faked.

You feel that you deserve it all,
everything and more.
So you label the Earth's oxygen,
label it as your's.
But we're all still alive,
so I guess that makes us thieves.
You want us out of here?
Haaa! Try and make us leave!

Ooh, your love is traced.
Ooh, and mines faked.
You thought we would succeed.. and I agreed

Rise And Carry On

Listen to song Lyrics

Rise And Carry On

Don't be so alone you have surely grown
Now's the time to let yourself receive
No need to gather strife
No need to run and hide
You're alive if you can only see

All you ever hear is doubt
And all you ever see is fear

Rise and carry on
Receive the word of love and sing your song
No ones in your way
See your path as gold and you will stay
Remember what you meet is for your growth
So hold on you'll be strong

In life we see a road it always leads you home
If you feel and really do believe
High upon a hill you'll hear a voice that still
Gathers all her children to the free

But all you ever hear is doubt
And all you ever see is fear

Rise and carry on
Receive the word of love and sing your song
No ones in your way
See your path as gold and you will stay
Remember what you meet is for your growth
So hold on you'll be strong

Listen to song Lyrics

I know u never love me
But deep inside I know
U will need me &
I'll be there for ya

I feel so empty now
Every night I sneak out
Under the night sky
Waitin' for dawn to rise

I just want to take u there
Take u to my paradise
Where we can splice
Baby! Just realize

We'll be together
Baby, make a choice
I will make u queen
Queen of my paradise

I know u love me
But u won't show it for sure
Reminiscing memories
waitin' for u on the seashore

I just want to take u there
Take u to my paradise
Where we can splice
Baby, Just realize

We'll be together
Together for rest of our lives
Just kiss me
Stop the time as u meet me

Just, hold my hand
And wait for a moment
Till the dawn rise
I'll take you
Take u to my paradise

I'm still waiting
waitin' in my paradise...

In your eyes

by veronikamindal

Genre: Pop

Listen to song Lyrics

1.
I can't forget your brown eyes,
Hope fades like clouds in the sky,
You're still deeply in my mind,
But you don't know,you are so blind.

I know you are my reason and my fate,
It's not in my power to make you love or hate,
Please don't betray, don't apologize,
i have no time to live in lies.

P/
I see another world in your eyes,
One moment changed the meaning of my life,
you showed me how to touch the sky,
you are the reason why I’m flying high.

2
I just want to hear you breathing near,
next to you my dreams are clear,
When i gently touch you in the night,
all my feelings are so strong and bright.

I m cold but my feelings are out of control
You think I'm the devil that I want to take your soul,
But I'm just a fallen angel from above,
I'm a real woman who so needs your love.

The Things that Leave

by jamisongross

Genre: Pop

Listen to song Lyrics

Verse:
So much to say, so little time.
So many words without a rhyme.
So many things we've yet to do.
So many moments I've shared with you.

Pre-Chorus:
How do I say goodbye to you?
How do I tell myself you have to move?
How do I close this chapter and write the next?
When I am without you, I hold my breath.

Chorus:
For the things that leave were the good ones.
The things that end were gold.
We need to keep on moving is what I'm told.
For the things that leave were the best ones.
The things that end were gold.
We need to keep on moving is what I'm told.

Bridge:
Why must you leave? I beg and plead
For you to stay another day.
Why must you leave? I beg and plead
For you to stay another day.

Pre-Chorus:
How do I say goodbye to you?
How do I tell myself you need to move?
How do I close the chapter and start the next?
When I am without you, I hold my breath.

Chorus:
For the things that leave were the good ones.
The things that end were gold.
We need to keep on moving is what I'm told.
For the love that I have within me
Is what I give to you.
I wish you luck in the future to move on through.

Outro:
Unending love, I have for you.
I will remember in all I do.
So much to say, so little time.
So many words without a rhyme.

Pretty Please

by stephfrancis

Genre: Acapella

Listen to song Lyrics

Just a second that is all it takes to feel the daggers coming my way
Can feel you staring from miles away with that filthy look upon your face
The simple question that I want to ask is sitting at the tip of my tongue
Why do you think that you’ve got a chance, oh honey cause we both know you’ve got none

I don’t care if you’ve got money, or if you drive a pretty car
I’m not interested honey and I think you are
Barking up the wrong tree and as long as you’re here
You’ll get nothing from me, so just leave, pretty please

To keep the conversation from occurring where you tell me how much you’ve changed
I’ll stop you in your tracks and tell you one thing, you might have changed but I’m still the same
You fake some confidence and make a move on me and I’m so over it
How many times have I said I’m not yours, my eyes are rolling cause you’re so full of shit

I don’t care if you’ve got money, or if you drive a pretty car
I’m not interested honey and I think you are
Barking up the wrong tree and as long as you’re here
You’ll get nothing from me, so just leave, pretty please

You’ve been hooked on me for quite some time
And I’ve been pushing through it, I know I can do it
Two years later and you’re still waiting for me
But you see
I don’t care if you’ve got money, or if you drive a pretty car
I’m not interested honey and I think you are
Barking up the wrong tree and as long as you’re here
You’ll get nothing from me, so just leave
Pretty please
Pretty please
Pretty please

Listen to song Lyrics

The blood is turning blue
The doors are opened , I'm going through
I saw your dancing lights
Embrace my fear, embrace the night
My blood is turning blue
The red is gone... I'm ready to see the truth
Is it you who is beating through my chest?
Holding back all that loneliness...
Is it you who's on my side?
Killing anger, killing all my pride?
Is it you who makes me strong?
Telling me what is wrong?
The crystal snows grow up inside me
That tells the truth we've never died, we've never died
My blood is turning blue...the red is gone ... I'm ready to see the truth...this time
I’m going through
May I give you my heart my mind and soul
May i see the sunshine running, dancing in the sky
May we bring the smile to others and make them feel this love
May you be my friend forever for the rest of my life

May I recognize you in this life time
May we’re proof about the endless love
May I bring fresh air to your life
May we bring a smile to others

Learn what is unlearnable
Believe what is unbelievable
Become one inseparable

The One I’m Looking For

by cristinafmusic

Genre: Pop

Listen to song Lyrics

I see a beautiful face that I can’t find
I see a beautiful face that I can’t find
Are you there are you the one I’m looking for?
Are you there are you the one I’m looking for?

I have no use for relationships you see
Hang me upside down and watch me bleed
Are you there are you the one I’m looking for?
Are you there are you the one I’m looking for?

When this melody fades
You’ll be in love with another
When this melody fades
You’ll find the one other lover

Your pretty face has suddenly erased me
Your pretty face has suddenly erased me
Are you there are you the one I’m looking for?
Are you there are you the one I’m looking for?

When this melody fades
You’ll be in love with another
When this melody fades
You’ll find the one other lover

I don’t wanna lose you x12
(Are you the one? Are you there are you the one?) x4
When this melody has ended/you will be pretending/this melody it didn’t
end

Are you there are you the one I’m looking for?

When this melody fades
You’ll be in love with another
When this melody fades
You’ll find the one other lover

Paradise

by ladymaryam

Genre: Dance

Listen to song Lyrics

Riding alone…
almost 2 A.M In a cold highway no lights
Dusty windows…
You opened them up for the wind to come inside

Coupled with Lana's charming voice
Playing in the old radio
Hell's above and heaven's below
How did we end up on this road?

We both know that I drink too much
And love is a heavenly sin
But we Just ride…
Who cares if they're judging!
Baby we are still young; still young; still young
We have the right to be wrong
We have the right to be wrong

Ooh…If only James dean
Had seen your wild eyes
You're…A teenage daydream
You taste like Friday nights…
Ooh…If only James dean
Had seen your wild eyes
You're…A teenage daydream
You taste like paradise…
You taste like paradise…
Give me a taste of your paradise
You taste like paradise…

Wasting time…
Is Easier than chasing it down as it flies
That's why I've…
been thinking of you all morning, all noon and night

So tomorrow I step out side
Dressed up just the way that you like
Dying for one more mid-night ride
Without you I'm barely alive

We both know that you smoke too much
And love is just a sweet disease
But we still ride…
Who cares if they're watching!
baby the night's still young; still young; still young
Love's easier said than done
It's easier said than done

Ooh…If only James dean
Had seen your wild eyes
You're…A teenage daydream
You taste like Friday nights…
Ooh…If only James dean
Had seen your wild eyes
You're…A teenage daydream
You taste like paradise…
You taste like paradise…
Give me a taste of your paradise
You taste like paradise…
Give me a taste of your paradise
You taste like paradise…

It's cold; baby would you take my hand?
Walk me home; I couldn't find a cab
There is no use thinking of the past
Mistakes and regrets make us human

It's cold; baby would you lend me your coat?
Translate my silence; don't trust my words
There's no use thinking of our ghosts
I love you too much to let you go

Ooh…If only James dean
Had seen your wild eyes
You're…A teenage daydream
You taste like Friday nights…
Ooh…If only James dean
Had seen your wild eyes
You're…A teenage daydream
You taste like paradise….
You taste like paradise…
Give me a taste of your paradise
You taste like paradise…
I'll walk through hell with you if you just
Give me a taste of your paradise
You taste like paradise…
You taste like paradise…
